HALF-TIME: Mansfield Town 1-1 Alfreton Town

TWO goals in two minutes lit up an otherwise drab first half at The One Call Stadium on Boxing Day.

In front of a bumper holiday crowd, the Stags finally broke the deadlock in the 35th minite when John Dempster hammered in from close range.

But within a minute Paul Clayton, dominant in the air in the first half, glanced in a free kick to level.
